RPA Standard Edition v2.3.0 Release

RPA (Rocket Propulsion Analysis) is the tool to own for liquid fuelled rocket engine design.
Although, having been around for a while, downloading the latest update I thought it may make a good post to talk about for those who have never come across it.

Basically, RPA allows you to design your liquid rocket engine from the ground up, carrying out performance analysis, chamber sizing, chamber cooling analysis to name a few of the features.
It is very easy to use and allows quick design and iteration of your rocket engine and can also export a .dxf file of the inner engine geometry for further CAD design.

It can be downloaded as a trial in the lite edition but I would highly recommend buying a full version, it will be an investment you would not regret.

Click here to download and give it a go.

One thought on “RPA Standard Edition v2.3.0 Release

  1. I have the free version. I found it is pretty accurate for the vacuum ISP if you know the mixture ratio and expansion ratio of a known engine with known propellants.
    But it is not as accurate for the sea level ISP. This maybe because more specific info on known engines such as the nozzle size usually isn’t given so you can’t input this info into the program.
